1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3-1/2 pounds bone-in chicken pieces
Lime butter:
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 Serrano chili pepper, minced
2 tablespoons white onion, finely minced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
A pinch of ground black pepper
  In a small bowl, combine first eight ingredients. With a spoon or a basting brush, spread seasoning paste over chicken. Grill chicken using medium heat on a gas grill or indirect heat for charcoal grills. Close grill lid and grill until chicken reaches 180 degrees in thighs and 170 in breasts, about 30 minutes. In another small bowl, combine all lime butter ingredients. Drizzle over chicken just before serving or serve separately for dipping.
